HP Unveils First Web-Connected Printer
HP this week announced the impending release of a groundbreaking new printer that the company bills the first-ever home printer that prints from the Web. The HP Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web is set to become available in the U.S. this fall, at a suggested retail price of $399.
The printer, which features HP's TouchSmart technology, will also access several applications, including some from Google, Fandango, Coupons.com, USA Today, WeatherNews and more. Users can create their own apps as well.
“By giving people access to the content they want at the touch of a finger, the ability to customize their printing experience and create their own apps, and enabling easy ’one touch’ wireless setup, we are driving a significant shift in how people will be printing in the future," HP's executive vice president, Imaging and Printing, Vyomesh Joshi, said as part of the announcement.
